I'm facing strange issue in my website. The products are not getting appeared if I reindex only flat and product related reindex. It requires catalogsearch_fulltext reindex. If I dont do catalog search full text reindex products are not getting appeared in frontend.

I'm having 3 stores in my website. So it takes almost 8 hours per store to complete the full text reindex. So to bring one product in my website I have to wait for 24 hours.

How can I resolve this issue? How to bring the product without reindexing catalog search fulltext?

FYI: I'm using elastic search, Magento EE v2.1.7

  • Time to reindex products is directly proportional to number of product and categories in the store. It is likely you have large number of product and categories Commented Mar 19, 2018 at 5:14
  • Yes. Im having huge catalog. Almost 70k products. It may grow upto 100k. Here problem is product is not appearing without doing catalog search full text reindex. Commented Mar 19, 2018 at 5:19
  • you can do the reindex by setting cron and run at the period of time may be your emergency fix. Commented Mar 19, 2018 at 5:55
  • @Kavithamano I have setup cron job for reindexing. To launch one product in my website its became mandatory to run this reindex which takes 24 to 30 hours. But I feel catalogsearch full text is not mandatory to bring one product. Commented Mar 19, 2018 at 6:04

You can set the cron to update on Schedule.

This way, thanks to the mview pattern, Magento will reindex only the entity_ids which need to be reindexed. (check mview_state and catalogsearch_fulltext_cl tables)

You need to think about incremental update and not full update.

I have the same problem with my customer. It takes 8 minutes to full reindex by stores, I have 31 stores so ...

I am trying to reindex each store in parallel.

Did you find another solution ?
